427- bats & MMXII

 I was cleaning off my desk today, going back to a vertical angle, and decided to get some quick little paintings done before hand. I was also watching Batman the animated series, so... the little devil guy is I guess more to do with the coming new year.

they are just acrylic on a really cheap pressed fiber paper, that I love.

bat reading H.P. Lovecraft

This is a Bat painting I did a few months ago for a Bat Conservatory Benefit show. It's a bat reading H.P. Lovecraft of course, what else would a bat read?

Late night linework

 This is what happens when you stay up too late and draw. Some weirdness comes out. Leaks out as neon line

421 more monsters, always with the monsters...

Usually I have some idea on what monster I draw is or who they are, that is not what is going on here. I have some trouble with the background shape too. I like the shape of the piece overall. I dont really like the shading on the shoulder on the left, I should have just shaded the whole shoulder. The shading in general should have been less detailed, more basic in shape definition. 
the balance of the footing is off too, now I am just nit picking. Sorry axe monster.

economy in line

this is my representation of fall.

Hi, as of late i have really begun to think about economy of line in my art. i have spent a lot of time in my life chasing the idea of realism as a goal for my art, and i think this is a common goal for artists. i have spent a significant amount of effort and time following this path, and as of now i think its a trap. with realism a loss of interpretation, or empathy occurs. i like to equate this with the simple drawing of charlie brown. if he was illustrated to be a realistic human image, he would be rather disturbing. but as a simple completely humanistic line drawing we the viewer begin to empathize with the crummy lines. its in those imperfect lines that we see the human hand that made them, the emotion of time or experience. in our constant attempt to identify ourselves in everything around us, more simple symbols become easier to assimilate. the majority of us have two eyes and a mouth and with this shared commonality we connect. in the book understanding comics, the author talks about the way most humans see an electrical outlet and instantly try to create a human face out of it, with the two upper prong holes as eyes and the lower as a mouth. the same can be said for the "face" of cars. as we head more into the realistic rendering or representation in art we become more and more specific to the chosen subject and remove the possibilities of alterity.

Shak is right. But be no victim of fate Bearded Demon, be bold! You tell them, let them know of the worst mistake of their pitiful lives. For Bearded Demon never forgets and certainly never forgives.

Gadzooks! Gadzooks indeed. That is a bucket of blood. Bearded Demon also seems shocked by the amount of spilled blood. But what a sick motobike maneuver!

What a comical turn of events, who would ever thought that those boy scouts were fans of Gangsta rap, not I that's fo sho. Also of note, Bearded Demon is one tough hombre, even his disembodied head spews threats. Albeit incomplete ones.

What sweeping ninja action! Sik Kik is sooo cool, yes two extra "o" cool. And that Bearded Demon is no slouch, at least in the action department.
